Recommended Posts

You're all here because you want a storm... I'm here because I'm petrified and am waiting for all this to blow over 😂

A beautiful altocumulus castellanus sunrise this morning. 

Oo she's a beauty 

My first attempt at storm shots 🤷‍♂️ (Please don't judge 🤣) The cells are impressive tonight!

These cells definitely have a Northerly feel to them, i understand how difficult Thunderstorms are to predict, but the MetO have been certain that they will be moving directly West 🤔 

They seemed to be West as they approached the ones in Wales but as they got closer they began moving North. At least that's what I think.

If you look at that N Wales storm in animation you can see the sferics moving east.

What is a Microburst?  🙂 Seen plenty to know them.

Thats the name i was looking for!

Yeah could have quite possible of been one. Ive been in plenty of gust fronts and that certainly wasnt one (or a VERY strong one)

On another note..

THERE IS A LOT! of convection behind this big storm .. Can see anvils to my south and west

Thunder heard from this presumably over Winchester - could Arome be right?!

Trouble is, I really need a poo and this has all happened so fast 😂

I can see the cell towards Bristol quite nicely from where I am in Cardiff, just hoping for something to develop further south than that now.

Think I'm in the eye of a Hurricane right now, completely surrounded by a circular wall of Cloud with clear blue skies directly above. 🤪
